The Oddbins Take

What we love about the wines of Cairanne is most people have no idea what the heck it is. “Is that a Gaelic female name? Is that a make of Renault?” they ask. While those in the know enjoy the wines incredible quality that belies its low price point.

Cairanne is a named village in the Southern Rhone just like Chateauneuf-du-Pape but of course, the quality of Chateauneuf is well known and the wines are priced accordingly. Chateauneuf is like a bar in Covent Garden; you’re sure to receive excellent service and have a wonderful evening but you aren’t coming away with much change from a crisp £50 note. Cairanne is that secret bar in Peckham your friend told you about, the one in the back of the launderette, requires a password on entry and hasn’t yet been affected by over-exposure. In side you sit at the bar and are immediately served a glass of Famille Perrin Cairanne and you luxuriate in the aromatic intensity, with notes of crunchy black fruit, highlighted by mild spices and flowers. Then when you take a sip; the mouthfeel is smooth and velvety with an elegant finish. Yep, Cairanne is so good it inceptioned its own metaphor… impressive!

    A Taste of France - Triple Bottle Gift Set

    A quick glance around one of our shops will illustrate that great wine is made across the globe and, if Elon Musk gets his wish, it probably won't be too long until we're knocking our Mars grown Pinot (we hear the soil gives it an incredibly distinct mineral character). Yet, whatever new wine frontiers are established, whatever new winemaking technique is en vogue, it always comes back to France; whether it's French grape varieties being planted or new world wines drawing comparisons to their French compatriots. For every aspiring oenophile, understanding French wine is a must and this selection of red, white and rose wines is a fine place to start!
